It gives me pleasure to welcome everyone members and others to this website where you will find information on the wide and varied activities of the Club – I hope you enjoy reading it.
Whether you are interested to learn sailing for the first time or participate in inshore or coastal cruising or racing the Club has activities which may be of interest to you. Our Dinghy Section is based at Bardowie Loch on the North West side of Glasgow and there courses are run for all levels of sailing during the summer months – some 200 RYA Courses were run over the 2013 season. Dinghy racing events occur on weekday evenings and at the weekend.
Keelboat Cruising Musters are held at various times and places over the summer in the Clyde and on the West Coast. One of the favourites is the Loch Spelve mussel supper and there is a muster aimed specifically at Ladies and Juniors which includes a short race round Rothesay Bay as well as shore based competitions and rowing races.
Racing for keelboats of all sizes is organised covering everything from short inshore races to longer distance races such as the Round Ailsa Craig.
The Club’s major racing event is Scottish Series based at Tarbert Loch Fyne which will be run for the 40th time in 2014. This attracts yachtsmen not just from Scotland, but from England, Eire and often far beyond. Entries come from top performing racing machines of all sizes right across the spectrum to smaller One Design keelboats to non-spinnaker classes for those who wish to take it easy, enjoy the atmosphere and social scene and not pot hunt!
For 2014 event planning has begun in earnest and if you have any constructive comments or suggestions then now is the time to pass them on. The Club is very keen to obtain feedback and the various committees do what they can to reflect that in the Club’s programme.
The Club also has a Publications company whose most important work is the highly regarded CCC Sailing Directions, our pilot books which cover Scotland from the Solway in the South West right up to Orkney, Shetland and the North Coast too.
There is much more information on this site so please check it out and I sincerely hope you will find some activities which are of interest to you.
Finally I hope you all enjoy a busy and healthy winter,
